Preparing For A Date

Aug 27, 2008
When you are going on a date there are some simple things that you can do to make the whole experience a lot less worrisome and also help you get more comfortable with the person. One thing to remember when you are preparing for a date is that a date is supposed to be fun, so try to prepare for your date so that you can be yourself and also be open to getting to know the other person.

Things to Do Before a Date

The first thing you should do before a date is choose to wear an outfit that is becoming. Many people try to choose clothing that is really sexy or even provocative, but this isn't necessary unless this is who you really are. Choosing an outfit for your date will be easy if you focus on where you are going, because than you can choose an outfit that is appropriate for that location. When you dress in a provocative way it may be interpreted as you trying too hard, and this is always a turn off.

Make sure that you don't smell too good! Many women pile on the perfume and men apply too much cologne and the result is that they are too smelly! When you smell too strong the person that you are going on a date with may never be able to get past the way you smell to actually get to know you. A couple drops of perfume or cologne is al you need!

Always meet a new date in a public place. Until you know someone it is simply the safest way to date and you should never bend the rules on this point. Meeting at a public place could still be a lot of fun and it could include meeting at a park, meeting at the movies, or even having a dinner together. When you are in a public place you have safety in numbers, because if something goes wrong there will be people around to help you.

It's important when you are on a date to listen well. You will want to ask questions and take a real interest in what the person is saying. A date that is listening and not just pretending to listen really is more appreciated and will be likely to get a second date when compared to someone who is not as good at listening as they are at talking. When you are a good listener you are also going to take in more about the person, more that you might like!

Don't take your date too serious! We all have a tendency to get too keyed up when we are getting ready for a date and we lose sight of the fact that it should be fun. Make time to laugh and have light hearted moments when you are dating, because this is what it is all about and someone who is happy and laughing is highly attractive!
